Highlights of Previous Events

Spring Saturday 2014

A casual day that gave us a chance to reconnect while the campus and town were in full springtime swing. Highlights included a cupola tour of the Seminary Ridge Museum (opened July 1, 2013), a wine and cheese reception, and a session in the new Gettysburg Lab for Experimental Economics (GLEE) with economics professor Rimvydas Baltaduonis.

    We opened our Fall Weekend with a Friday evening reception at the Eisenhower Institute. Saturday morning we spent at the Eisenhower National Historic Site, followed by lunch and the opportunity to explore campus and the town. We wrapped up the weekend with a concert and dessert reception at the Majestic Theater.
